In this dog-eat-dog world, if the only way anyone can make money without hurting others, is finding the buried treasure. No wonder people go an extra length for finding out the buried treasure.

Generations after generations of the successful individuals will talk about the success.

Gold Prospecting – The Future way

Future gold prospectors will depend more and more on technology. The search is still on for finding the buried treasure. Now the satellites are being put to use for this purpose. GPS (global positioning satellite) and GPR (ground penetrating radar) are being put to use. Presently only the dry areas of earth are under scanned and the depth of search is limited to 3 meters, but soon the things will improve and the second gold rush will start.
